Conserving Water at Your Apartment in Mount Dora, FL
While our beautiful planet is absolutely full of water, only about 3 percent of it is fresh water, and even less of it is potable. Even though as Americans we are fortunate to have plenty of fresh water available, there are many places on earth where life-giving H2O is harder to come by. Here in Florida, most of our water is extracted from subterranean aquifers or other parts of our natural environment. While no one living in our state is in danger of running out of water anytime soon, extracting water from the earth is difficult and can be demanding on the environment, especially if a drought or long summer taxes our water supply. In order to ensure that everyone has plenty of water and our environment stays healthy, you can take steps to cut down on your water usage in your Veranda apartment.
Here are just a few ways that you can conserve water at your apartment in Mount Dora, FL:
• Take showers instead of baths. Showers tend to use less water, and this positive effect can be amplified if you keep your showers as short as possible.
• Turn off your faucet while shaving or brushing your teeth. Similarly, you can turn off the shower while you are lathering up or while applying conditioner.
• Do large loads of laundry and dishes. By doing less frequent but more concentrated loads, you will still clean the same number of items, but your water usage will be considerably diminished.
By using these techniques to reduce your water usage at your Veranda apartment, you will not only benefit the ecosystem, you might even save a noticeable amount of money on your monthly utility costs.
